Stockton, California

Stockton is a city in California and the county seat of San Joaquin County. Its location is 3758' North, 12118' West; its land area is 52.57 square miles (33,644 acres); its water area is 0.95 square miles (606 acres). As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 243,771. Its mayor is Gary Podesto.

Stockton is surrounded by the rich agricultural areas of the California Central Valley, and has a large inland port. In and around Stockton are numerous waterways that comprise the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

It is also home to a major private university, the University of the Pacific. UOP is frequently used in Hollywood movies because of its aesthetic likeness to East Coast Ivy League universities. Its most famous such appearance is probably Steven Spielberg and George Lucas' Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Stockton used to be the site of a California State Hospital, the oldest in the state system, founded only a few years after statehood. Stockton State Hospital was closed in 1996 and has since been converted into a campus for California State University, Stanislaus.

Famous Stocktonians include singer Chris Isaak and the members of the band Pavement.
